NEW YORK (AP) — A New York federal judge says he'll rule by the end of the week on a challenge to a state law banning people from showing their marked election ballot to others.

 

 

Judge P. Kevin Castel heard arguments Tuesday as a lawyer for three voters insisted his clients should be allowed to distribute ballot selfies on social media. A city lawyer, Stephen Kitzinger, called it a fad and argued against it.

 

Arguing for the voters, Leo Glickman said social media is a fact of life rather than a fad.

 

Kitzinger said the request to declare bans on distributing pictures of completed ballots unconstitutional came too late for this election. He says over 35,000 polling place workers and 2,500 police officers already have been trained.
